The O2 Academy Oxford, the city’s largest venue, has secured investment granted from Academy Music Group (AMG) to receive a state of the art Coda Audio LA12 / SC8 PA system. Liverpool based installation specialists Adlib have been enlisted to install the system at the 1,020 capacity venue.
“We’ve worked with Adlib for many years and are pleased with this new installation. We’re already receiving really positive feedback from touring Sound Engineers and Production Managers.” says Caren Ashton-Penketh, General Manager, O2 Academy Oxford. “We wanted to invest in a first class sound system for great audio that can meet with the demands for touring international artists, as well as the high level of major club brands that we work with.”
Hannover based Coda Audio, is a leading designer and manufacturer of high quality pro-audio loudspeaker systems. It is widely regarded that the technology incorporated in Coda products is at the forefront of the audio industry due to the number of unique patented driver technology designs which provide outstanding dynamic results as well as improved precision and reliability over conventional components.
O2 Academy Oxford’s system will feature 8 x Coda LA 12 full range 3-way speaker enclosures, utilising 2 x 12″ neodymium ultra-low distortion woofers, 4 x 3.5″ coil neodymium mid-range drivers and 3 x 4″ neodymium planar wave drivers. The sub-bass units are 6 x Coda SC8F Subs containing 4 x extremely long excursion 18” neodymium ultra-low distortion woofers with an integrated velocity sensor that measures, compares and controls cone movements. The system is processed by Coda’s DNC260 Processors and powered by Coda’s C10 Class H Amplifiers, which deliver 5000 Watts per channel at 4 Ohms.
